Cornerstone On Demand

While more than 75 percent of CEOs say gender equality is part of their top 10 business priorities, women remain underrepresented across every level of the corporate pipeline—comprising just 37 percent of management positions and 19 percent of C-Suite positions, according to a recent study from McKinsey and LeanIn.org.

What’s the Difference Between Human Resources and Organization Development? Being part of a consulting firm that focuses on people analytics and organization development, I am often asked to explain the precise differences between human resources (HR) and organization development (OD).

Organizations could be apprehensive to ask a direct question for fear of what employees might say. The last thing anyone wants to do is ask, “What would make you happier working here?” and then not be able to deliver.
